In our time, many can afford to have a pool in the courtyard of a private house or cottage. But it should be noted that building a reservoir in my yard is one thing, but taking care of it is another. You need to install filters, constantly clean and clean up trash that accumulates on the surface of the water and on the bottom. To simplify the task of the owner, you can make a shed over the pool, which will protect it from pollution. You can buy them ready-made, but you can do it yourself, saving you a decent amount. So, this article will look at what types of sheds are, what they serve and how to make them. Let's analyze all these questions in detail.
Protection against garbage - this is far from the only goal that such a design serves. It is multifunctional and allows you to solve many problems.
Having built a shed or pavilion for the pool, you can get these "bonuses":
As you can see, by spending a little money on such a simple shelter, you can significantly save money, keep your and your loved ones healthy, and extend your life.
To not overhang the pool It was built in vain and fully fulfilled all its tasks, for which it was built, you need to comply with certain requirements in the construction of such a building. First you need to determine for what purpose it will be intended. After all, both the choice of the material itself and the strategy and technology of the work depends on it. One thing is for sure - the future roof has a construction familiar to us and practically will not differ from other similar ones.
The following are the basic requirements that must be followed when choosing and installing a structure:
Depending on the size and other features of the pool, there are several types of designs installed above the tank, which are intended for various purposes.Among them:
Based on these design features, structures can be divided into such types:
Pavilion in full growth
In addition, they all differ in shape. Some are made rectangular or round, others are trapezoidal, others are cylindrical or asymmetrical. It all depends on what you expect from the canopy, what is the size of your pool and what is the area near it.
Types of pavilions
First thing you need if you want to build a similar shelter: the type, shape, height, design and purpose of the building - all this needs to be thought out in advance. For small pools fit stationary canopy, which will shelter him in bad weather and protect the swimmers from the scorching sun. If the size is large, and the area allows you to place a pavilion, then you can build it. It all depends on your choice and needs.
Drawing of the canopy
It is advisable to design the future canopy, specifying the dimensions and all the features to navigate during construction . This can be done both on paper, drawing a detailed scheme, and creating a project with the help of a building program on a computer. Then you can calculate the approximate consumption of materials. If you don't really understand this, look for detailed plans on the world wide web and choose the one that best suits you.
Now it is time to realize all that is written on paper. For example, we consider how to build a stationary canopy for the pool. To do this, you will need the following tools and materials:
Ready canopy polycarbonate
It is better to use polycarbonate sheets as a coating material. It is becoming more popular and is often used for the manufacture of visors for the pool. And this is no accident, since it has several advantages:
When you have prepared the material and all the necessary tools, you can start working on the construction of your polycarbonate coating.
Concrete frame stand
Although polycarbonate is a fairly lightweight material, the whole structure will have a decent weight. Therefore, it is better to install such a canopy on a solid concrete foundation, the depth of which is 50 cm and the thickness is 20 cm. A framework will be installed on such a blind area. Then you can trim the sides with tiles to make everything more attractive and protect the base from moisture.
You will need a shovel, a tape measure, a level, a rope, and pegs. To begin, mark the area with pegs and a rope. Stick to exact sizes. Along the perimeter, focusing on the markup, you need to dig a trench 60 cm deep. Watch for the evenness of the bottom of the trench and the walls. After that, cover the sand with a layer of 5-10 cm at the bottom, tamp it down and re-fill the layer of crushed stone and sand at 5-10 cm. Make a formwork that is a multiple of one or two ceramic tiles (depending on their size) to be covered with blind area. Now mix the concrete solution and fill the foundation. It remains only to wait until the concrete has gained strength, namely 1 month.
Another variant of the base - when the supporting pillars simply dig into the ground, then there is no need to make a foundation. This type is suitable in such a case, when the ground is quite dense. Deepen the pillars need not less than 60 cm.
Frame based on the trusses
After that, it was time to make frame, which eventually will be sheathed with polycarbonate. It will be made of a shaped pipe, which must be treated with an anti-corrosion agent before use. The roof can be made flat or arched. In this case, the profile should be cut in three places, bend and weld with a welding machine. If you are not confident in your abilities, it is better to entrust such work to a professional.
Another version of the frame
What design you will have depends on your choice. Its size and design is chosen by you personally. It is important to adhere to exact dimensions and check the evenness of your design.
The last, final stage of the canopy construction is its covering. To accomplish this, you need:
Now your pool and you are protected from the effects of rain and sun. But what if you need to cover your tank completely so that garbage does not get there, the wind and it is protected from all sides? Need to make a pavilion. The manufacturing principle is similar. The only difference is that the material needs more, since the frame must be sheathed completely. It can be of any height and shape, depending on your desire.
To build such a canopy for everyone, the main thing is to show imagination, make a detailed drawing , purchase material and follow the recommendations for construction. To summarize, all work can be divided into the following stages:
